In the past ten years, China's e-commerce has experienced an era of rapid development from scratch to prosperity. A few days ago, the latest data released by the China Instrument and Meter Industry Association in 2011 showed that the scale of production and sales of China's instrument and meter industry exceeded 500 billion yuan for the first time last year, and 5521 companies above the industry-wide scale. Under the "weak" global economic environment, China's instruments By joining hands with e-commerce, the instrument industry has opened up a new development path in the manufacturing industry and has become a "unique" high-speed development industry.
China Instrumentation Industry Association pointed out in the "12th Five-Year Development Plan of the Instrumentation Industry" that market demand is changing rapidly and product structure is urgently adjusted. In particular, the country has vigorously promoted energy conservation and emission reduction and a green economy. Modern manufacturing, clean energy, large aircraft, Offshore projects, smart grids, and other special projects, as well as emerging industries such as urban rail transit and people's livelihood, provide a broad market opportunity for the instrumentation industry. According to the general manager Liu, a senior connector agent in South China, the market demand for five major types of instruments in the next five years is very large, mainly:
1.Industrial automation instrumentation and control system
At present, the operation of the national economy is in a special period. While maintaining sustained, rapid and healthy development, it is necessary to increase investment in infrastructure, basic industries, agriculture, real estate and high-tech industries. Therefore, in the coming period, all sectors of the national economy will need to build a number of major engineering projects. At the same time, a large number of enterprises will need to carry out technological transformation in order to improve product quality and economic efficiency and maintain strong social competitiveness. Looking at the general trend of economic development, there will be a greater social demand for industrial automation instrumentation and control systems. In the next five years, the average annual growth rate of demand can reach more than 15%.
The technical transformation tasks of China's industrial enterprises are quite arduous. In the next five years, there will still be a group of small and medium-sized generating units below 200,000 kilowatts, more than 50 medium-sized ethylene plants, 70 oil refineries, more than 500 heating furnaces, and more than 200,000 industrial Boilers, etc. all need to be technologically modified. Most of them need to improve the automation level, and the original analog meters are updated with new digital automation meters.
Scientific instruments are classified according to the original mechanical system instruments. In addition to various analytical instruments, they also include optical instruments, testing machines and laboratory instruments. Optical instruments mainly include various microscopes (biological microscopes, reflection microscopes and electron microscopes, etc.), geodetic surveying and mapping instruments (theodolites, level gauges, etc.), optical measuring instruments (tool microscopes, projectors, angle measuring instruments, and optical instruments attached to machine tools, etc.), Physical optical instruments (spectrometer, light meter, spectrophotometer, monochromator, polarimeter, refractometer, etc.) and optical test instruments. The testing machine mainly includes various metal material testing machines, non-metal material testing machines, non-destructive flaw detectors and dynamic balancing machines. Laboratory instruments include precision balances, drying ovens, vacuum instruments, strain gauges, environmental testing instruments, calorimeters and acoustic instruments.
3. Medical instruments
China has a population of 1.3 billion, more than 310,000 medical and health institutions, and a broad market for medical instruments. As China's economy has moved from food and clothing to a well-off society, people's living standards and medical conditions have improved significantly. China has become one of the top ten emerging markets for medical equipment in the world and Asia's largest market outside Japan.
As China's reform and opening up continue, first of all, community health services will be further developed, coupled with the further improvement of rural medical conditions, objectively, the demand for large-scale and wide-ranging conventional diagnosis and treatment equipment will rise. Secondly, China's population is close to 1.3 billion, and the proportion of the population over 65 years of age has exceeded 6%, and it has entered an aging society. As a result, the total demand for China's medical device market is higher than the growth rate of the international market. Third, common tumors, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and respiratory diseases in China are the diseases with the highest mortality rates. However, infectious diseases such as hepatitis and local diseases such as schistosomiasis still seriously threaten people's health. Therefore, China's disease spectrum is also positive. At the stage of transition from developing to developed countries, more and more safe and reliable medical instruments are required to meet the market supply. Fourth, with the gradual implementation of the urban employee medical insurance system, medical institutions will gradually shift to a clear division of labor, and the number of comprehensive all-round hospitals will be curbed. On this basis, it is predicted that the conventional diagnostic and treatment instruments corresponding to basic diagnosis and treatment items will have a large growth rate in the next five years, and the growth rate of high-end medical equipment will decline. In 2003, domestic medical equipment sales exceeded 7.8 billion yuan, with an annual growth rate of 9.8%. In 2003, medical equipment imports reached 993 million US dollars, with an annual growth rate of 228%. The main imported medical instruments include X-ray diagnostic equipment, MRI equipment, patient monitors, electrocardiogram recorders, etc.
4.Electronic and electrical measuring instruments
(1) Electronic measuring instrument
The domestic electronic measuring instrument market has developed very fast in recent years. In 2003, domestic enterprises had sales of about 2.8 billion yuan, with an annual growth rate of 22.4%. In 2003, the import value of electronic measuring instruments reached 1.05 billion US dollars, with an annual growth rate of 26.7%. During the "Tenth Five-Year Plan" period, the state will raise the development of the information industry to a strategic level, and drive industrialization with informatization, which will become an important opportunity for the development of the information industry. The basic means for the development, production, and maintenance of the information industry is electronic measuring instruments. It is predicted that electronic measuring instruments for information products will have a large development and will maintain an annual growth rate of 20% in the next five years. Sales are expected to reach more than 8 billion yuan.
In addition, the rapid development of household appliances in China, such as the development and large-scale production of digital televisions, DVDs, and multimedia products, will bring greater demand for the development of electronic measuring instruments for household appliances.
(2) Electrician measuring instruments
After decades of development, the electrical measuring instrument industry has formed a certain production scale and capacity, and the products have reached a certain level. The bulk products can basically meet the domestic market demand, and its market share is more than 95%. During the "Tenth Five-Year Plan" period, the market has increased demand for high overload, long life, electronic and digital products. At the same time, it requires product standardization, serialization, generalization and good performance-price ratio. In 2003, the sales of domestic electrical measuring instrument companies reached 11.566 billion yuan, with an annual growth rate of 35.9%; in 2003, the import value of electrical measuring instruments was 215 million US dollars, with an annual growth rate of 40.1%. In the next 3-5 years, the market demand for electrical measuring instruments will continue to increase, and the annual demand for electrical measuring instruments will exceed 60 million units (sets).
5. Other instruments
Due to the current status of China's instrumentation technology equipment in more than 20 national departments and large group companies in addition to the machinery industry, it is difficult to make a more comprehensive forecast of the domestic market demand for other types of measurement instruments. However, according to the analysis of the overall operating situation of China ’s national economy and the trend of sales and growth rates of the instrumentation market in recent years, the types of special equipment that can be predicted to develop at a rate of more than 20% in the next five years are: special instruments for automobiles, special instruments for environmental measurement, Special instruments for agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery, special instruments for geological exploration and earthquake prediction, nuclear radiation measuring instruments, quality inspection instruments, entry-exit inspection, quarantine instruments, etc.
With the arrival of the 12th Five-Year Plan, China's instrumentation industry will also enter a stage of rapid development. In the next five years, the industry's total output value will reach or approach 1 trillion yuan, with an average annual growth rate of 15%. Judging from the substantial growth of China's instrumentation and market demand, the market prospect of China's connectors is very broad in the next five years.
